This five-page handout helps people prepare for an angiogram, which is a procedure that uses a dye and x-rays to see how blood flows through the body. It discusses what the procedure does, clarifying that the peripheral or balloon angioplasty may be done if a person has narrowed blood vessels. It provides advice to help the patient prepare, and explains what will happen during the procedure. The document makes recommendations for what to do after the procedure, as well as home care for the following week, identifying those symptoms for which a doctor should be called immediately.
